Footpaths and bridleways weave across the local landscape,
making a Gilling West cottage an ideal choice for exploring
Swaledale and Teesdale. And there are walks to suit all levels of

gentle strolls. If your visit falls in June or early July, expect
amazing wildflower meadows ablaze with colour and scenting the air
with fragrant perfumes.

stay and there are a few things worth a mention - Richmond Castle
perched above the River Swale and the enjoyable Castle Walk; a
Georgian theatre; three superb museums; plus a weekly market and
monthly farmers' market. Also close by are the fascinating
